9:14 pm
impact. >> i couldn't see my wife in the passenger seat. i asked her if she was okay. she wasn't responding. popped my shoulder back in so i could unbuckle everything and get to her. >> this isn't the first bridge to fail with terrifying results. the 2008 collapse of the minneapolis i-35 bridge killed 13 people and in 2009 cracks and corrosion on a boston bridge sent rocks raining down on a woman's windshield. investigators hearsay a semi truck carrying an over-sized load gashed through a steel beam and likely triggered this collapse. but the bridge is old, too, built in 1955 with a pile of mediocre infrastructure rankings and recent repairs. neal karlinsky, abc news, mt. vernon, washington. uc berkeley engineer says the bridge is fracture critical. if one thing fails, the whole thing collapses. he says the same flaw exists in
9:15 pm
the bay bridge. the story from transportation reporter heatherish march u. >> the i-5 skagit bridge is a truss bridge built in 1955. uc berkeley engineering professor says the 150-foot section collapsed because it was fracture critical. that means if one piece of it fails, the whole thing goes. not all truss bridges are fracture critical. and it's not necessarily because it was built in the 1950s, though the professor says it was harder to design in redundancies or backup systems with a slide rule. he says there are probably a couple hundred fracture critical bridges in california, including the old car keen is, the richmond san raffaele and the suspension span of the new bay bridge has fracture critical features. coincidentally, at four locations where suspect bolts are located. but cal tran says there are redundancies in place. >> you will be shocked to hear that we don't design fracture
9:16 pm
critical bridges. we try not to. but our new self-anchor suspension bridge is fracture critical. >> i would say that is not accurate. there is significant redundancy built into the design of this bridge and that's not how this bridge will operate. >> the american society of civil engineers calculates if we were to do all of the required retrofitting for our nation's infrastructure by 2020, it would cost $3.6 trillion. at treasure island, heatherish ma rue, abc 7 news. can you imagine. that's an enormous amount of money. spencer is here to talk about the weather. it's still strange and cool out there. >> it was a perfect lead-in to the weather. there's a lot of redundancy. the last few days have been alike. cool, breezy, temperatures below average. that's what we have now and clear skies as we look at live doppler 7 hd. it's clear and breezy now.

9:18 pm
high pressure keeps us mainly sunny and dry tomorrow. as that cold front approaches early monday morning, we'll see lots of clouds around memorial day morning about 10:00 or so. later in the day, as the front moves farther south, say, by 5:00 p.m. or so, perhaps earlier, we could see some light rain moving through the bay area. we don't think the entire bay area will be wet. we don't expect drenching rainfall. but there could be wet spots nonetheless. overnight, mainly clear skies but a few areas of low clouds may form overnight. it will be breezy and pleasantly cool with lows ranging from upper 40s to low 50s. tomorrow we'll see mainly sunny skies by afternoon. high temperatures in the south bay right around or just above 70 degrees. 71 at san jose, 73 in morgan hill. on the peninsula, mid to upper 60s. 64 at san mateo. on the coast, breezy, cool, 58 at half-moon bay. in and around san francisco, highs tomorrow of 58. in the sunset district, 62

9:24 pm
some experts say it would be worth as much as $2 billion. last year, hulu generated about $700 million in revenue. the five-year-old company has about 4 million users. if you have at&tiress service, check your bill. at&t has added a new 61-cent administrative fee to its wireless plans. at&t says it is needed to help cover expenses. the company has more than 70 million subscribers, keep in mind. so at&t is set to make half a billion dollars in new revenue. 61 cents at a time. america's cup organizers are cutting the number of racing days in july and they're looking at moving up the daily start times. it's part of an effort to make the race safer after that deadly crash on the bay two weeks ago. abc 7 news reporter mark matthews went out on the water today with the sailors. >> a typical day on the bay until 1:00. at noon, it was just enough wind to get the emirates team new
